I hope you and your entire family will join me tonight, December 7th at 5 pm, as we light the tallest Christmas tree in Long Beach at the Terrace Theater Plaza. The plaza will be lit up and decorated to celebrate the holiday season. The evening will include carolers, food trucks, rides for the kids and a visit from Santa.
The 40 foot tree has more than 35,000 lights and will be lit along with the fountains, palm trees, and numerous holiday displays. The decorations and lights will brighten the entire plaza, creating one of the most spectacular lighting displays in Southern California.
The Terrace Theater Plaza is at Ocean Blvd and Long Beach Blvd.
In honor of Hanukkah, which began last night, I will also light a menorah in the City Hall lobby at 4pm today, and the community is invited to join us. Our Long Beach Jewish community is strong and we want to honor these special traditions.
I want to wish everyone a joyful holiday season, no matter how you are celebrating. See you tonight!
